Politics and Election Day will make headlines all week long, but it doesn’t mean it makes the best small talk at work. In fact, politics is rarely the subject you should turn to for small talk (even if you think you’re on the same page with the people you work with.)
The opportunity to screw up that conversation and ruin a relationship just isn’t worth it.
Sports small talk gives you something to talk about and keeps you away from seriously divisive subjects. Sure, fans have opinions about their favorite teams that might not align with yours but it’s nowhere close to being on opposite sides of a political conversation.
So with that in mind, I beg you, try sports. I make it easy for you by providing weekly sports #ConvoStarters. It’s your cheat sheet to sports topics making news and a way to make small talk easier.
You can get these #ConvoStarters every Sunday night by following Talk Sporty to Me on Instagram.
